It’s Jesus!

Performance: Lilydale Seventh-day Adventist Church - July 6, 2013
Brief: A short drama to complement a sermon on the topic of the Second Coming, focusing on the anticipation of seeing Jesus in the clouds.

Suddenly, the sermon is interrupted with [trumpet / thunder] sound effect in the main sound system, followed by some ambient ‘hallelujah chorus’ background music. lights go out (except spotlight/stage) and a ‘second coming’ sunset picture on screen]  
This the que for the speaker to stop mid sentence and stand back to watch on the side while the drama takes over unexpectedly (to the audience at least) with the following:

Joy comes in the morning

Scott Wegener on things that go more than bump in the night.

The sound of an espresso machine frothing milk, “Pssshhhhhhgshgshgshgshgsh”, and a two-stroke lawn mower idling, “putt-putt-putt-putt-putt”, are intermingled with the deep airy sound of a T-rex trying to blow out candles that never extinguish, “kerrrrrrrrrr – khoooooooo”. This best describes the concoction of sounds in the small echoy dormitory room I was trying to sleep in.
